MLB Instant Replay Review 158: Cory Blaser (03)
Instant Replay Review overturned 2B Umpire Cory Blaser's out call in the bottom of the 5th inning of the Padres-Nationals game. With two out and none on, Nationals batter Jayson Werth hit a 2-2 fastball from Padres pitcher Andrew Cashner on the ground to second baseman Jedd Gyorko, deflected to CF Alexi Amarista, who threw to Gyorko as Werth slid into second base. Upon Instant Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Nationals Manager Matt Williams, Blaser's ruling that Gyorko tagged Werth while off his base was reversed, the call was incorrect. At the time of the review, the Nationals were leading, 3-0. The Nationals ultimately won the contest, 4-0.
